In response to Re: Joists under a bathtub?
The answers depend on the span between supporting walls on the lower floor, but 2x8's are fairly small for any tubs and especially a whirlpool when it is full of water, which it has to be in order for the jets to function properly. You would be better advised to have an architech or structural engineer advise as to the proper support.

: I am considering adding a bathroom to an upstairs space and creating a master suite.
: What would the floor joist requirements, sizes and distances o.c., be for a standard tub or a whirlpool?
: I think that the joists are 2x8.
: Thanks for your help
